Shutdown: Day 4
The partial government shutdown drags on, and it looks like it will continue at least through the weekend. The shutdown has also coincided with the pathetic roll-out of the ObamaCare exchanges. The failure of these exchanges to properly work should be an embarrassment to this nation and it should worry every person who thinks that a government that can’t adequately set up websites in three years will do a great job handling your healthcare. We’ve seen glitches galore, we’ve seen information not being properly protected and we’ve also seen how few Americans are actually enrolling in these exchanges. It’s a joke. This week, Washington has demonstrated the liberals’ dedication to big government and incompetence. Why they insist on imposing this train wreck known as ObamaCare on the American people is beyond me. They blindly propagate only the benefits while completely ignoring the consequences (intended and unintended). The a dministration picks the winners and losers of who will actually be forced to endure the true consequences of ObamaCare, putting political expediency ahead of average Americans and, not to mention, the rule of law.
“We Are Winning”
The White House selfishy declared this week that they are “winning.” A quote from a senior administration official reads: "We are winning...It doesn't really matter to us" how long the shutdown lasts "because what matters is the end result." There you go, America! That’s what the administration really thinks. It doesn’t care about the shutdown or the effects of ObamaCare because “they are winning.” No compromising. No negotiations. All that matters is that Democrats “win” and get their precious ObamaCare AND fund the federal government without any negotiation on spending or taxes. It’s also important to note that a majority of Americans (54%) want to see all or part of ObamaCare repealed. Do you hear that, Democrats? Do you hear that, Barack Obama? The American people do not want your law. Yet when the Republicans stand up for the American people and do everythin g in their law-abiding power to stop it, this makes them “anarchists.” Nonetheless, I maintain that Republicans need to hold the line. This issue of ObamaCare is too big and it is too important. Our issues related to spending are too big and too important. Somebody has to force the liberals to come to the table and take a long, hard look at the realities of what we are facing. America is already projected to not be able to keep up with its current obligations long-term, and adding ObamaCare into the mix only makes things worse.
Today is the first Friday of the month, which means that usually we get a jobs report from the Labor Department. But because Barack Obama and the Democrats insist on keeping the government partially shut down in order to fund ObamaCare, the Labor Department was unable to put together September’s report. But that’s OK. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what is generally happening in our country and our economy. Unless there was some sort of dramatic turnaround in September that I’m unaware of, the following facts remain true. You can read more on Hannity.com about this month’s job’s report.
